The story of the Apollo Space Program is as unknown as it is unique. The technological
triumphs of the Apollo missions were the focus of unparalleled media frenzy in the 1960s
and '70s as America rushed headlong to the moon.
Yet behind the forgotten bylines are the stories of those in NASA who undertook a challenge
of a different sort. These astronauts were not only men of science, many were men of faith
as well, and a daring that allowed them to leap into the unknown. The result is an
extraordinary drama that unfolded behind the scenes.
Their stories are as remarkable as the men and women who lived them.
Praise for Apostles of Apollo
"It's a classic."
– Edgar Mitchell, Lunar Module Pilot, Apollo 14
"The technological side of things changes quickly. The side shown here is the side that endures."
– Apollo 17 Commander, Eugene Cernan
I have only just started reading this incredible story. . . . What I can tell you
upon starting it, is that it is an astounding read. You do not have to be a Christian—or
even remotely religious—to enjoy the story of the tenacious dedication that the Apollo
Prayer League provided to make astronaut Edward White II dream of seeing a bible reach the
lunar surface and return safely, a reality. They exceeded his dream by a further 299. The book
is an engaging read and is skillfully crafted by interweaving the story of the Bible into the
history of the Apollo Program. It is by no means a religious book. It is the story of the American
Manned Space Program, and the dream of some dedicated Christians who worked as part of NASA's team
to place a Bible on the surface of the Moon and returning.
